Weekend Diversion: Happy Halloween 2010!

“Dusty Rhodes, do you think you’re what our forefathers were thinking about when they thought up the American Dream? Ooooh, yeah, I don’t think so.”
Macho Man Randy Savage


Those of you who’ve known me for any length of time know that Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and know that I put a whole lot of effort into my costumes. Here’s a scary song for you to take you through this year’s costume,

Caleb Meyer,
by Gillian Welch. But I am not Gillian Welch for Halloween this year.

One of the most ridiculous — yet entertaining — characters from my childhood was this guy: the Macho Man Randy Savage. With his ridiculous outfits, raspy voiced “OooOOH YEAH”, insane rants, and Slim Jim endorsements,

he makes for a challenging Halloween costume! But he also has a beard, which was the deciding factor this year. So without further ado, here I am as the Macho Man Randy Savage!

Endorsing protective eyewear…

Squaring off against the Iron Sheik…

And posing with the lovely Rainbow Brite! (Miss Elizabeth has nothing on her!)

Happy Halloween, world, and enjoy the new profile photo! And whatever you’re doing this weekend, I hope you’re having just as much fun as I am!
